The arbutus tree really shows off it's lobed leaves with a dusting of snow.
This plant with the "finger" type leaves is a Choisya, or Mexican mock orange, native to Mexico and the American southwest. I bet it's wondering what the heck!!!
As always, one on my favorite views is round the bend of the driveway, when the snow is fresh and unbroken. Once we drive up and down a few times it loses it's appeal!
Snow makes whiteness where it falls,
The bushes look like popcorn balls.
The places where I always play,
Look like somewhere else today
